Alley Oop Zucchini Redux

You may remember my recent dilemma with the gigantic zucchini I called the Alley Oop Zucchini.  Since I had no takers for it ( despite the fact my daughter expressed an interest in it), I tried sneaking it to my neighbor.  Strategy : call her up and offer a couple of summer squash for her.  Then as she opens the door, try to sneak Alley Oop past her foot. Result: Open-mouthed consternation then total rejection. The twins were literally screaming as I started back home with Alley Oop in my arms.  Alternative strategy : Offer it to the new mailman  coming down our block.  Result: Head shaking rejection.

So what did I do?  Got out the cuisinart and Alley Oop is now :

2 loaves of Zucchini Bread

24 no-wheat Zucchini Muffins

2 containers of frozen grated zucchini for future baking.

I kind of miss seeing him leaning against the wall as he was wont to do.
